Reminiscent of Rock classics Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Heart, Psych-Rock band Tonic Zephyr delivers a bone shaking wall of live sound. Front woman Madi Gold’s lyrics project ominously over the band’s progressive guitar riffs, melodic bass lines, and unwavering beat, leading spectators on a journey through the stratosphere as she touches down on Earth with a quake. Drawing infinite inspiration from the limitless cosmos, Tonic Zephyr’s message to the world can be summed up into a few simple words: a trip to remember.
Madi Gold and lead Guitarist JT Loux formed the band in early 2016, releasing their first album as Tonic Zephyr in 2017. After welcoming in Reilly Olsen (bass) and Ricardo Ucles (drums) in 2017, the band’s vision evolved, and they began working on their next album, to be released in 2019, inundated with the youthful angst of the next generation of Psychedelic Rock and Roll.
This Cali grown 4-piece has shared the stage with Frank Hannon and Jeff Keith of Tesla, Twanna Turner, Keith St. John, Pat Martin’s Allstar Band, Buddy Guy’s Band, Pat Travers, Trapt, the award winning Greg Golden Band, and Matt Pinder. The band’s reputation for energizing and mystifying their audience has led them to stages such as the Ace of Spades, Opera House Saloon, Harlow’s, Holy Diver, and The Boardwalk.
“…a lyrical and mesmerizing sonic odyssey led by the inspired and textural guitars of J.T. Loux, the exquisite vocals of Madi Gold and solid backing by the rhythms of Reilly Olsen on bass and Ricardo Ucles on drums.”
“Tonic Zephyr is one of the strongest medicine music bands of our time. These four young adults capture the essence of your soul through their lyrics and music. Their on stage presence is mesmerizing as they connect with each other and bring their audience in with them. Once you hear them and see them perform live, you will be a fan for the duration. I can’t wait to see where their journey takes them and Bandhoppers is happy to support them along the way.”
